Around 2 am you'll hear a scream (if you are on the main street) coming from the Market, NOT the graveyard. Hurry there and you'll see the Butcher stalking someone. Strike fast and swift, otherwise you might be too late, and the Butcher claims another victim. It won't give you a bounty on your head...so don't worry...

The quest seems to bug out a lot. If you really want hjerm and thane eventually, when you start a new game go first to windhelm. If you go to the graveyard and the body isn't there the quest is bugged out as there is no required level for this quest. HOWEVER there is one more way you may be able to salvage the quest but its going to take some luck. Find Tova shattershield. ( if you already did the darkbrother hood quest to kill her daughter she kills her self and is in the top floor of the clan shattershield house) you need to pick the key to hjerm off of her. On the one account I had that this quest did not fire up right away, upon entering hjerm the quest kicked in and put me up to the point of investigating. If breaking into hjerm yields nothing the only fix is to make a new character, sorry.

I entered from the docks and the quest wouldn't start. The body was there but being ignored. Luckily, I'm in the habit of saving before entering a new place so I reloaded and went through the front gate instead and it started just fine.
